Centro Escolar University (Pse - CEU) (Filipino: Pamantasang Centro Escolar) is a private university in the Philippines. It was founded on June 3, 1907 by two women, Librada Avelino and Carmen de Luna, and was originally called Centro Escolar de Señoritas. It became a university in 1933. Today, the university has three campuses, the main campus is the Mendiola Campus in Manila, the Malolos Campus established in 1978 is in the northern suburb of Malolos City in Bulacan province, and the newly established Makati Campus in 2005, is in the Makati Central Business District. Originally, its Parañaque Campus was part of the university's system until it was phased out in the early 1990s.

The university offers programs in the arts, humanities, sciences, and allied medicine. CEU also has dentistry and pharmacy programs. All of its academic programs are accredited Levels 2 and 3 by the Federation of Accrediting Agencies of the Philippines. CEU is the first university in the Philippines to be given an ISO:9001 certification on its campuses. It was granted full autonomy status by the Commission on Higher Education. The university is listed on the Philippine Stock Exchange with the stock symbol, CEU. The university celebrated its centennial in 2007.
